For me guilt is far more nonproductive, than it is motivating. I struggle to bounce back after feeling
guilty about something. Especially when it comes to goals or creative things that I want to be doing.
I've been trying to encourage myself recently saying,
"No feeling guilty, Anna. You haven't been in the studio for a few weeks, no worries. Just go back in and do something."
Feeling guilty substitutes favorable action. Guilt gets me into a selfish/self-loathing mind set, which makes me want to escape it instead of overcome it. Frequently, instead of going back into the studio, I sit around and surf the web on my phone, just trying to avoid feeling bad. A more healthy response would be to actively pursue the good that I want to be doing. It's good to feel good. It's good to think positively about me. Guilt takes the place of positive action. I don't want to give it that power anymore.
How do you stay positive and disregard guilty thoughts and feelings?
